was going to come here to the united states. but i think those body scanners and other things need to be part of this. >> would those scanners have detected the level of petn that abdulmutallab was carrying? >> i think it's unknown. but i think it would have enhanced our potential for actually identifying it. >> why is he being treated as an enemy combatant instead of a criminal? >> we're a country of laws and what we're going to do is make sure thate treat each individual case appropriately. in the past richard reed, the former shoe bomber, all of them were charged in criminal courts, were sentenced in some cases to life imprisonment. we have tools available whether it's enemy combatant or charge them criminally. we look at the cases and in this case decided it was best to charge them criminally. >> would there be additional intelligence that could be gleaned by making him an enemy combatant? do you believe whatever you are learning from him was the christmas day plot part of something larger from al qaeda and the arain bran peninsula? >> we have different ways of obtaining informati

bringing gitmo detainees to the united states but in the last bill that was passed the majority removed that constraint. we have 40 members of our party in the senate and a number of democrats who want to work with us. i hope that we might be able to do that. but i think the bush administration has been shown to have made a mistake. i hope the obama administration will learn from that and not continue to commit the same mistake. >> chris: let's talk about another i suspect you will say it as mistake. did you think it was a mistake to charge abdulmutallab as a criminal defendant? >> clearly. as you said in your interview as soon as he got a lawyer, he lawyered up. now, they may be able to negotiate over a period of months or years some kind of deal in which he gives them some information but we have the ability or had the ability in the previous administration to interrogate detainees following the laws and the constitution, not torturing them, but getting information from them. and this man, abdulmutallab probably has more insight into possible other recruits that al-qaeda would be send

the united states. how do you think this review and what are the kind of changes do you think it will yield to the control system? >> the first thing that is happening is that the process is actually moving more efficiently than it has in the past. the thing that isn't done yet that's got to be part of this is revision of the munitions list. we still have a cold war munitions list. we still haven't -- >> list of stuff that requires -- >> when you run a trade deficit of a billion dollars a day you need to loosen up on some of these restrictions. >> it is about as much of technology that comes out, more uponly about a system that tracks technology when it comes in and in making people afraid of putting technology into the united states. >> because they can't get it back out again. >> that is the critical issue and i think that is the driving imperative for control as well as our ability to cooperate with our allies and share in the technology for the fight for today. >> and some will take reform in the pentagon. the five different committees that generally act sequentially can result in

the 44th president of the united states. jim, you're chomping at the bit. >> i would connect two of those, obama and fort hood. i think that the obama administration's response or lack of response to the fort hood shooting and all the discoveries we've made about muslim jihadist infiltration into the united states is going to prove to be the biggest story of 2009 and frankly, obama's term in office. >> jon: judy. >> i think that the phenomenon of home grown radicalization will be certainly the national security story of 2009. i have to agree with you, jim. >> jon: all right. you're jumping a little bit ahead of us because we're going to get into that. ellis, your take on president obama and his year just completed. >> well, it reminds you that a really huge story one year can produce an almost as huge story the second year. you know, we're finding this out. it's too soon to have real perspective on it, but you do have to say from the noble to the war issues to the health care issue all of that goes back to january 2 and back to november as well. >> jon: cal? >> well, look, the expec

united states. explain to us what he is talking about. what he means by that. >> well, he is zeroing in on this cia and potentially other intelligence officials who have sort of what is called a pre-9/11 mentality and in the early part, the preliminary findings the president ordered that he get by last thursday and what we told by other officials is that the cia knew that the eventual suspect had some or appeared to have some ties to extremists in yemen, and potentially elsewhere and did not share that with other intelligence officials, and that is the kind of breakdown we saw that led to 9/11, but thankfully in this case, it fizzled out, because it did not fully detonate, but it could have been a horrific attack on christmas day. the president on tuesday, the first full day at the white house will have after this vacation, cia leaders and other bell jens leaders in the situation room demanding answers and beyond that pointing blame, and what went wrong and what are you going to fix now? how do you prevent future attacks, and that is the point of all of this, don. >> well, a good remind

-- illegal -- for a woman to be president of the united states? what is post-feminist about a society where our ads and television commercials are demeaning to women such as one for a very popular chain store that chose an adolescent girl lying on a target with a bull's eye right between her legs? what is post-feminist about a society with a subprime mortgage debacle fell with particular hardship on poor women and women of color? these were women who were struggling to have a piece of the american dream. some were single moms, some were elderly moms. and when they started out, their mortgage rates were rates that they could afford only to see them adjusted and adjusted and adjusted upward until they had to forfeit their homes. iowa knee that hill -- iowa ania hill who's a law professor at brandeis university, has just completed a study in which she found all women no matter what their background were charged more than men, even men in the same differently -- comparable, i should say, financial situations. what is post-feminist about a society where movies, g-rated movies, the

in africa than there are episcopalians in the united states. >> there's twice as many anglicans in sudan as there are in the united states-- just one big country in africa. i don't think we're anywhere near catching up with what this means, not only on social issues but on doctrine, worship life, and all the rest. what's it going to mean, not very long from now, that christianity is essentially an african religion and not a western one, not a north american or european one? >> you're seeing that, to some degree, in the debate about global warming. i do think the environment is another area where we're going to see continuing activism and debate within the churches. the presence of a very strong group of third world christians in all of the denominations is going to put the focus not simply on the issue of reducing carbon in the atmosphere, but also on what kind of compensation third world countries will get, which became a very critical issue in the discussions in copenhagen. >> abernethy: let me move to another point, kim especially. there is an investigation going on, or a review
